I was in prison, and... - One week of daily devotions designed to center your thoughts on persons in prison, and persons with family members in prison.
Why? - Answers to difficult questions from prisoners and their families
Louise Reichert has served as an unofficial representative of HFP in the Upper Peninsula for the past several years.  When HFP President Doug Tjapkes learned that she was a gifted writer of prayers, he would often forward information to her about actual experiences with prisoners.  She would respond by writing a prayer.   Publisher Dirk Wierenga, who also supervised the publishing of Doug's book SWEET FREEDOM, labels the realistic prayers as "gritty."'

The story of HFP President and former broadcast journalist Doug Tjapkes, as he leads a team of volunteers on a mission to gain the release of Maurice Carter, a wrongly convicted prisoner serving a life sentence. The true story of an unlikely friendship between a white middle-class broadcast journalist and an African-American serving a life sentence in prison for a crime he did not commit. An amazing account of outrageous injustice contrasts with a poignant and sometimes humorous tale of two men who became brothers in faith.
